JoCare - Caring for neighbours

26 September 2016

JoCare is a free community program in the Malvern area, promoting neighbourliness and caring for people living independently, as a community outreach program. Many people may be isolated or living alone and a friendly visit for a chat or a cup of tea, sharing a newspaper or going for a walk, can make all the difference for lonely people. JoCare volunteers are recruited from members of the community, they receive a detailed manual and training, outlining their responsibilities and boundaries. This initiative fills the gap between services offered by social or health workers and is extremely well received by the community members it is supporting.
